Another game / company to follow suite in the new era of lazy-mode protections by jumping on the kernel-level trend. This time it's Denuvo, the already hated company in the gaming space. 

Can't wait to see what kind of hilarious exploits come from yet another insecure driver!

Bethesda doing what they are good at, getting it wrong.

Aside from the fact there is a driver for the anti-cheat I can understand existing customers being disgruntled at being forced an update with this included.

Unless I am mistaken, please correct me if wrong, I don't think it should be necessary to run in single player mode...

According to multiple people, you can't even launch the game itself without the AC installed/running. So this does affect the single player mode too, even if it does nothing while playing single player.

Cant CreateFile, DeviceIoControl, CloseHandle be hooked, the driver logic emulated in user mode and the communication scheme be emulated to work around it in both offline/single player and online/multiplayer mode.  Not that emulating the call logic is going to be trivial, but would make for a very generalized medicine.
